Schulte family continues their journey with son Isaac’s cancer

Isaac Schulte is the two-year-old son of Patrick and Erin Schulte of Burke. He was diagnosed with neuroblastoma. A PET scan showed that Isaac had cancer on his adrenal glands, some of the bones in his spine, on his lymph nodes, in his pelvis, and his upper leg bones in addition to the large tumor on his liver.

We told the first part of his story in the January 1 edition of the Gregory Times-Advocate which detailed the family’s discovery of Isaac’s cancer. This update describes his treatment since then.

Isaac had to go to Masonic Children’s Hospital at the University of Minnesota for apheresis. During apheresis, a machine removes blood in order to remove one or more blood components before cycling the blood back into the patient’s body. In Isaac’s case, they planned to harvest stem cells.
